In my studio my students are to play 2 recitals per year. One in December and June. This will give the parents and the student the opportunity to show each other the improvement they have made in 6 months. Every student will improve in different stages so the concerts are always fun and interesting. Everyone participates no matter what level they are presently.

No words can express how good she is at teaching cello
Layla
As an adult learner, I was intimidated by the prospect of learning the cello because it’s such a demanding instrument, but Arlette has put these apprehensions at ease. She is wonderfully experienced which gives the student a very solid foundation; essential to playing the cello well. Highly recommend her as an instructor for any aspiring cellist.
Joshua
I started playing cello at 26 years old with absolutely zero musical experience of any kind. After 6 months of attempting to teach myself the cello, I decided I needed help and begun my journey to find myself a cello instructor. I was so fortunate to find Arlette! Arlette was abundantly patient with me, from my habit of asking too many questions to my very unpredictable availability. Before Arlette started teaching me music theory and how to play the cello, I never appreciated the value of having an instructor. After having taken lessons from her for nearly a year, I would simply say having a fine instructor like Arlette is a necessity. The first time I played a duet was with Arlette, and it was a moment in my life I am so thankful for and I will never forget! She is kind and consistent, very professional but also very personable which is a very hard thing to balance. She pushed me to excel without making me feel overwhelmed. I could go on forever about how great a cello instructor Arlette is so I will finish with this... If you are looking for a cello teacher look no further.

Lydia was very welcoming and kind, and put me at ease during our first lesson. She knew I wanted to work on mallet percussion, and had a lesson plan ready for me on the marimba. She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!
Mike
Lydia's teaching style is fantastic! As an older learner, she was very patient and understanding with me while still helping me reach my goals. She taught me many different ways of playing and different styles. It is a pleasure to be taught by such a remarkable percussionist!

"Having had Albert as my music director on various projects (Dreyfus, Eating Raoul, The Big Bang, many others), I can attest to his uncanny ability with singers in terms of getting from them their very best. His ability to give them an all-around grasp of the material is nonpareil.

I also have to add that his ability with an entire chorus is equally impressive and inspiring for them. Many times members of the cast have approached me to compliment Albert and his unusual and fascinating ways of teaching and imbuing the score "into their very core.""

"I can speak to Drew being a wonderful performer, as both a solo artist and in choral ensembles. She has developed a very good stage presence, whether it is on a Saturday night at an East End Louisville Bar, or on Sunday morning at a New Albany church choir. At her young age, she has a good foundation for how a future musician will be expected to conduct themselves to enhance their musical performance career. She is also very blessed with a great gift for her vocal and instrumental skills."

"Buzz is an excellent teacher and brings real world music experience into his instruction. As a touring musician, producer, song writer, and arranger, Buzz has an understanding of practical application. When I perform, I am always looking for ways to play smarter, and Buzz always helps with that. Buzz will break down music theory in a way that makes sense and that I can apply to my own playing on gigs and in rehearsal sessions. Buzz is a tremendous teacher for beginners (I have watched him give lessons to young students and he is excellent) , but if you are an experienced player and are just looking to get better, working with Buzz will get you there. I promise you'll play better after one lesson."

"The thing is, everyone wants to hone their skills when it comes to performance, but getting the skills isn't the only thing that you need to do. That is where Jan comes in, she can teach you how to sing, she can tell you when your act is not up to par. More importantly, she can teach you how to relate to your music (most likely you can't), and how to build a relationship with the audience in the short amount of time you're on stage (you probably don't know how to do that either). Jan has worked with people at every level and so she has really honed her craft when it comes to teaching. If you are a student of music performance, she can take you to that next level no matter where you are at. I've taken voice lessons in a private setting by a former vocal-music pro who has worked with former Mrs. Kentucky winners, and with teachers on the University/Collegiate level. Jan is the best I've had so far.

Notes:
1. Come eager to learn, not eager to talk about your life story. A lot of students go to lessons and talk a lot. You don't want to do that, you will miss out on the instructions and performance philosophies that you need from her. Listen more than you talk.

2. Come with clear objectives. If you don't have them, spend time with her developing those objectives. She is an objective oriented person when it comes to teaching, be an objective oriented student.

3. She has really competitive prices for her teaching quality. The hour is worth it.

4. Come with a lot of respect, she will give you a lot of respect if not more. She treated me almost like I was an old friend, and she is a really charming lady. Be nice to her : )

5. She is a really nice person and won't hurt your feelings. She has really good social awareness so you don't have to be afraid of that. If you can drop your ego at the door and take criticism, go ahead and ask her for that extra bit that you need to get you even further. Have some skin in the game.

6. Don't waste your time trying to figure out how good of a teacher she is during your lesson, you can read that stuff online. Come to her studio to get work done.

7. Ask questions that she can give quick answers to (it helps her know that you're hungry to learn). Bring something to write with."

"Awesome teacher

I'm a violinist and teacher myself; Cecilia has helped me a lot with my playing and teaching skills, improving my technique and showing me new tricks. She has a natural flair to help you have fun with what you're doing, and classes are even better with her. She keeps you motivated and knows how to keep a clear view of the objective you want to reach, and how to reach them with clear and simple concepts. Cecilia’s helped me a lot with my posture and playing tension free, which has improved immensely the sound of my music. You shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity of having classes with her. Strongly recommended."

"Bill is a thoughtful teacher, an amazing musician, and a really caring guy

I would highly recommend Bill! He is such a great player and teacher! He has helped enormously with my saxophone playing, clarinet playing, and improvising.

Since my saxophone playing is already fairly advanced. In our lessons on saxophone focus heavily on advanced jazz improvisation topics, like standard tunes, and transcription. He is so knowledgeable on these advanced topics but is really great at showing me the basics so that I can learn at my own level and pace.

On clarinet Bill and I work on more classical studies and instrument technique to get my clarinet playing more on track.

Bill is such a patient and motivating teacher. It is clear that he cares deeply about MY SUCCESS in music. He has helped me feel good about my musical progress and inspired me to work harder!

He has even given me lots of great music business advice, and helped me think about what I want out of music in my life.

Bill is so easy to get along with and is really careful to explain things in a way that I can understand them.

Its been really awesome getting to know and work with him!"
